QUIZ: Can you pick the players who have spent at least a year at world number one?

If you are a keen follower of tennis records, then you know we are approaching a very significant moment for the world number one. 

Novak Djokovic is about to surpass Roger Federer to become the man to have spent the most weeks on top of the world rankings.

It is an achievement that simply cannot be underestimated. The Serbian star has spent roughly five years of his career looking down on the rest of the ATP, in the era which has seen more all-time greats vying for honours than any other.

So, for no other reason other than fun, can you pick out the players to have spent at least 52 weeks as either WTA or ATP world number one?

If anything, the wrong answers on this list should highlight just how impressive an achievement it is for those to have done it.

Good luck, and be sure to let us know on social media how you have done!
